WGU Tennessee adds new MS program, gains HR endorsement

Western Governors University (WGU) Tennessee has two curriculum updates to help the state’s students prepare for careers in high-growth fields.

WGU Tennessee has added a new master of science program in nursing informatics. It will train graduates to prepare, gather, document and analyze data to serve as a foundation for data-driven decisions.

A prestigious endorsement has been granted to WGU’s human resource management program for the bachelor of science degree in business. The endorsement comes from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), a professional human resources membership association headquartered in Alexandria, Va.

WGU Tennessee is a nonprofit online university operating in Tennessee since 2013 with the goal of providing quality, affordable college education to working adults, though online competency-based classes that fit into a busy schedule.
